Recently noticed my GPU card (Nvidia 1060) made more coil noise (electrical noise, noise level proportional to frame rate) than usual. I discovered that directly behind the GPU chip one of 2 big 470uF, 2 volt capacitors had broken off. I just received 3 replacements (EEF-HX0E471R4).
But it got me thinking about the noise I heard and the remaining capacitor. Should I change the other capacitor also?
The voltage ripple must be bigger with the loss of capacitance, but can the system be designed such that a loss of capacitance can start a domino like degradation of the rest of the capacitors? (I am an EE, and of course I have to overthink it, but I have little experience with ~2 GHz digital design)
